Election polling places could soon be required to display all political signage, regardless of whether they believe in a candidates values or not. State Senator Dale Righter says that's a bad idea which could mean fewer voters and polling sites.

Righter says the central issue is whether state government has a right to tell private property owners, such as churches, they have to display all political signs. Supporters of the bill say the measure will have very little impact on voter turnout and the number of polling places. The bill now heads to the House.
